They were first mentioned in history in 948 and their last cheiftain Rory O'Canainn, was slain in 1248 to be succeeded by Godfrey O'Donnell as king or Ri of Tir Conaill. However it was not recognised as a town until the Plantation of Ulster when the Fair-headed hillside was granted to a scotsman named Patrick Crawford along with one thousand acres of land between 1610 and 1611.
He was killed at the Seige of Dunyvegan in Isla, Scotland and sir George Maybury married his widow.
